Apple Bumps White MacBook Specs

| News

Apple quietly updated the specs for its entry level MacBook this week to more closely match the features of its unibody siblings. The updated model now sports a 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor with a 1,066MHz frontside bus, 2GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M video processor.

The updated laptop keeps its white plastic body instead of switching to the metal unibody construction found on Apple's other laptop models, and also keeps its FireWire 400 port -- a feature that was dropped from the unibody MacBook design.

The white MacBook is still priced at US$999.

So in other words, it’s a heavy netbook with way more features. Not to mention a Hard Drive that can actually install MS Office and have room for more than five text documents left on the drive.

go figure.


How dare they. Three months ago I got a White MacBook. and now here they have made it unusable. I’m outraged, outraged I tell you. I demand that Apple update my MacBook to the newest spec for free, give me a .me membership for a decade, and drag Steve Jobs out of the hospital to deliver all of this personally. No other personal computer company updates their products to make the old ones obsolete like this. I mean really.



now only the mac mini is left with intel’s integrated graphics ...
my guess is next week ...
